Welcome to the Borough of Modena!

Trash and Recycling


Good Morning,
In order to keep our work force safe due to the extreme heat that is forecast this week, we would like to have pick up occur one hour earlier.  We feel that this will be safer for our crew and will help to avoid the highest heat in the middle of the day.  If you have, any concerns and or questions please reach out to me via email or my cell phone listed below.  Thank you for your understanding.  
 
 
Effective Monday, March 30th, Eagle Disposal will be enforcing the following collection mandates in an effort to protect our frontline team members and as a result of having a limited workforce during this COVID-19 pandemic:
  • All trash must be bagged and tied. If you’re in a municipality that has a mobile cart, all bags must be placed inside your mobile cart. Loose items will be not be collected.
  • All recyclable materials must be placed inside your recycling container, including your flattened cardboard. Recyclable items left outside of your recycling container will not be collected.
  • We will enforce the bag and/ or cart limits as designated by your municipality. If you are over your limit, your trash will not be collected.
  • Bulk item and yard waste collection is suspended until further notice. We are doing this so we can continue to focus all our efforts and personnel on trash and recycling collection.
All of the above actions are being put in place to help protect the health and safety of our team members. After the COVID-19 crisis is over, we will resume our normal collection practices and reinstate bulk item and yard waste collection services. Please continue to check our website and your municipality’s website for updates. Eagle Disposal takes great pride in being a trusted partner in the south central Pennsylvania community for the last 20 years. We appreciate your help, understanding, and patience as we all navigate these unprecedented times together.
